Destinations we offer > Maldives > Resorts > Vakarufalhi Island Resort

This is the perfect picture of the tropical island haven - the image that almost always comes to mind. A small, almost circular island, about a quarter of a kilometer in diameter, the island is covered with lush vegetation and crowned by tall coconut palms. The atmosphere here is cosy and intimate. Vakaru is designed to blend in harmoniously with its surroundings, to match the nature's perfection and its simplicity. The local-style thatched roofing you see wherever you are at the resort match perfectly with the coconut palms while the layered soft white sand on the floors in all public areas keeps you in touch with nature even when you are indoors. The big plus is the dive centre, run by Pro Divers they certainly live upto there name. The equipment and operation is first class.


Standard Rooms

Most of the 50 on the island are individual bungalows, all surrounded by the lush tropical vegetation in all its natural splendour. Spread out around the island offering complete privacy, all face the beach. Convenient family accommodation is provided by opening up the interconnecting doors between semi-detached bungalows, especially designed for the purpose. Cool tiled floor offers welcome respite after a relaxing day in the sun and the sea. Colourful tropical patterns on the drapery add a touch of colour to the interiors. Large glass doors facing the beach offer an excellent view of the bright colours of the lagoon and your own area of the beach. In keeping with the simplicity of the resort the rooms are spacious and airy, tastefully furnished and with nice little details that remind you that you are in the Maldives.

All rooms are air-conditioned, with mini fridge, stereo CD player and hair dryer. A comfortable rocking chair completes the picture. Each room has a small verandah facing the beach where you may relax quietly in the comfortable chairs provided. If you would like to sit and relax still closer to the beach you may use your very own sun loungers placed right in front of your room on the beach. The attached bathroom, partly open air with a small garden, is equipped with bathtub and shower. An additional shower in the small garden offers a pleasant choice and allows stargazers to have a bath under the open sky.





The meals at the main restaurant give you an excellent variety, with breakfast and lunch buffet style and dinner a mixture of themed nights and a la carte.

A nice touch for couples, which is included in your rate, is a private candle lit dinner on the beach in front of your room.


Volleyball, badminton, table tennis, catamaran sailing, windsurfing, canoes, island tours.


The South Ari Atoll is home to some of the most famous and well known dive spots across the Maldives. Vakarufalhi itself lies directly next to some of the diving hot spots offering quick and easy access to a lot of these sites. There are over 30 dive sites close by (all within a one hour boat ride) and offer a huge variety of corals, fish life and of course, the chance for big fish encounters.

Stunning coral formations, incredible colours and a huge variety of fish life have made the Ari Atoll one of the top diving destinations around the world. Add into the mix regular Manta Ray and Whaleshark sightings, and its clear to understand why people keep coming back for more. Dive sites such as Kuda Rah Thila, Broken Rock, Manta Point and Maamigili Beru are all within easy reach of Vakarufalhi. From January till end of March visits to MANTA DIVE SITES are made several times a week. In April, May and then again September through to November there is a good chance of seeing whalesharks in the area.
